Coal between the us president the saudi king issues that perhaps saudi doesn't really want to talk about. What actually what's interesting about. The call is that the president touched on three issues. One was human rights. Any specifically single Jane elliott loon. The women's rights activist. Who has been released from prison but still has a severe restrictions on her The second is warned. Yemeni americans have made clear that they want this war to end and the third was security reassuring king solomon that america has saudi arabia's back.

Open fought hand the saudi foreign secretary. He said pretty much the same thing. He didn't mention the. Jane elliott little but he talked about human rights.

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report
"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia.

Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U.

And I think That part of the premises. Incorrect. As long as the Ayatollahs are in tower. Nobody could don's the murder show. Nobody has any doubt that the Saudi government was involved in it.

"Time and who make critical decisions on their behalf. That is one area that that the Saudi government has also sought to reform. And so that's where you see the hypocrisy and really it. It just goes to show that Crown Prince Mohammed is a man wants to be the only reformer in the kingdom. There is no place for others to really partner in this vision in this what he calls modernization. What is the significance of this sentencing coming when it when it does 2.5 years after she was first jail? So I mean, at this point. The conviction at this at this time especially is is definitely a strategy by the Saudi authorities to try and, you know, minimize the global attention to the case. You know she's been convicted, treating the holy days when they're banking on the world, not paying attention to this. It is unclear why they had rushed. Her trial s so quickly the terrorism court after it had been suspended for a year and a half after she had been jailed for two years and a half and have been subjected to torture and sexual assault and harassment. And so this rushing of her trial at the terrorism court, which is which is victorious and quite abusive and where unfair trials have been rampant. Really just goes to show that you know they Saturday government fused woman's rights activism is a form of terrorism him, But were you surprised by this sentence? Or is it basically what you expected? We were definitely surprised because in the in the, uh in the previous week's as they were crushing the case and the terrorism court Um you know, the international community he had really come together on really shown solidarity and machines case. We know that the Saudi government is seeking to be seen as a modernizing force. As as you know, our progressive country on the on the international stage. We know that they are sensitive to their global Am bitch. And we really did hope that that this kind of international pressure from you and experts from diplomats around the world and human rights organizations when believed to her immediate release, and then so this is definitely quite disappointing. This is no victory in any way and really, it is a message to any other activists within the country and even abroad of the consequences that they could face. They don't told the line. It was a dean is a researcher on Gulf affairs with human rights Watch. Thanks, Hava Anything? Thank you. You're listening to the world. Going to hear about new.

Reports of kashogi is murder and the overwhelming evidence that the saudi government including crown prince mohammed bin salman. We're responsible for his murder.

But her family hopes the international attention will help free her.

Even though he's made social and economic reforms of priority. He's also dramatically shrunk civil liberties by cracking down on dissent, free speech and activism. So it's a duty for the international community when they engage with Saudi Arabian to tell them These reforms that you are talking about cannot be believed when the real reformers the one was that their lives in dangers are still in prison.

"Awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics today for research on designing better auctions. NPR's Scott Worsley reports. Economist Robert Wilson was born in Geneva, Nebraska, and he came by his interest in auctions early on. When I was a boy, I would go to the cattle auction on Saturday morning, Sit up in the bleachers and watch the cows speak great again. Buying or selling one steer a time is not exactly the stuff of Nobel Prizes. But at Stanford, Wilson and his protege, Paul Milgram, turn their attention to more complicated auctions for things like wireless telephone licenses, where the value might depend on a company's ability to assemble a nationwide network. To put theory into practice in the 19 nineties, when they helped the FCC design auctions that raised more than $100 billion for the government. Work has also helped design auctions for electricity and fishing permits, and they're thinking of ways it could be used to distribute medical supplies. Milgrom says. Markets don't automatically function the way you like them, too, so it's important to have good rules. All of us remember early in the pandemic. The terrible disorganization we had in allocating, for example, respirators where the states were competing against each other and simply bidding up. The price is in times of crisis. We don't just want prices going through the roof. We need well find out systems Wilson and Milgram, our neighbors as well as colleagues. So after he got the congratulatory call from Sweden very early this morning, Wilson walked across the street to give Milgram the good news.

"Two friends. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of is you and Crown Prince Mohammed bin of United Arab Emirates, where they agreed to finalize a historical peace agreement. Everybody said this would be you know Mohammed is one of the great leaders of the Middle East. After 49 years, Israel in the United Arab Emirates will fully normalized diplomatic relations. They will exchange embassies and ambassadors and begin cooperation. Across the board and on a broad range of areas, including curs of education, healthcare, trade and security. Joining us right now is Katie MacFarland, former Trump, deputy national security advisor and author of Revolution Trump Washington and we, the people, Katie, It really is a really big deal, isn't it? It is impossible really overestimate how big a deal. This is mean In my book. I wrote just sort of a preview of it, and I wrote it to two or three years ago, saying that Jared Kushner In the Middle East. He took a completely different approach than the historic one that's always been taken that he was thinking outside the box was taking the approach of a businessman, and so instead of, you know, pushing the Arabs and the Palestinians together. And having nothing Come of it. He went around it and about going to the United Arab Emirates. That was the place to start. Now, the other two things that made this possible when President Trump walked away from a nuclear deal. Around. Put him distract number two. The energy We didn't need to be fighting of their sites. And as president, Trump said, a couple of times you need to be there. And so it was a I really put it all on. Jared Kushner shall never get the credit he deserves, but he has been working tirelessly. Quietly behind the scenes to bring these two together and understanding that the economic boom that's about to happen between those two countries. Nobody realizes that Israelis can't sell stuff to the Arab world and vice versa because of their prejudices in their laws. But now all of a sudden, Israel has a window on economic window, a trade window into the entire Arab world, and vice versa. So you a taking the lead and they're the money guys in the middle of the year of the world, and then they will be followed by other countries in short order. And not only does this put Iran into a really, you know, lonely position and an economic distress position, but it also puts the Palestinians into position of you guys want peace. You know, we're not going to keep paying for you to to destroy a lot of the options in the Middle East, So I think it just changes everything. It changes US Security Malaysian. It changes Arab Israeli security millage changes the diplomacy and I never thought Larry. I would say this President Trump underestimated me under soul that we think this is 40 years. Something 1000 years. This is a really big deal, Katie. We got most of that. But you did break up. Lose your signal. Little bits. If you could just, you know, firm that up a bit, if possible, And I just want to repeat what I think I heard a couple of the important things here. First of all. Huge credit in moving this along to Donald Trump and Jared Kushner for pulling out of the Iran deal, delve into that a little bit more. But by pulling out of the Iran deal and isolating Iran. They made it very, very certain in terms of our influence in the Middle East, that you're either on the side of us and peace or you're on the side of Iran and the terrorists, and there is no middle ground there right that. That's why that was so important. Well, it was important for a couple of reasons, one because President Obama had turned around American foreign policy to support Iran. He had abandoned our Sunni Arab allies, and he didn't push for Iran. So what it did was really kind of push the Arabs into the arms of Israel to a certain And they don't have the money to pay for terrorists, and they certainly don't have a lot of other Muslims in the Middle East wanting to support that. And also Kate Human. For Owen. It's not like Joe Biden can step up and say, Oh, you know, we laid the groundwork for this right with when you guys took over in the White House. There was It's not like there was already something going down this path. This is completely organic to the Trump presidency. Oh, completely because you needed to have energy independence to do it. He needed to have the Arab world of oil. Richer countries say Okay, G. You know, we're not gonna be able to put People start thinking of another way to survive. So maybe we should look at it Thrill and the really the personal diplomacy May the President Trump's first foreign trip. You never was in was to Saudi Arabia. You die here. You know, he went there them. He put his flag down to say we're going to try to do something and we're going to try to do something different, and we're going to do it away from the cameras away from the spotlight and God bless them. They pulled it on one last thing on this Katie MacFarland that we were told that when the president Stayed true to his promise to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem that that would halt any kind of progress with regard to Middle East peace. In fact, it would isolate Israel. It would isolate the United States of America and it would prohibit any kind of day like we see today with you, eh, actually acknowledging Israel's right to exist. Everyone who warned against moving the embassy look like complete and total fools today, don't they? Yeah, with bozos. I mean, look out by Bobby the embassy Attention gristle in President Trump's showed he can take bold moves. He'll take a calculated risk, And he also demonstrated to Israel. Look, I got your back, no matter you know if you come to a deal with down the road If you come to a deal with the Arabs don't worry. I'll catch her back. So I mean, the whole thing was brilliantly choreographed. Between energy independence between wanting to get out of the Middle East between the working with the Sunni Arabs, Teo de radicalized theory in the whole thing working with Israel to guarantee the sturdy mean it's just brilliantly done so bravo to them, and nobody saw it coming. One final thing on this Katie MacFarland appreciate you joining us. Do you believe that? This is not the end of this story? I've heard people speculated today. Bahrain will be close behind here and there will be some other countries in this region following suit. You bet. I mean, this is a united Arab amorous. It is economic. You know, they're they're the bankers of the region. And so bye, then making this move. Others will follow suit. Not only just give others of the political cover, but it gives him a financial instead of nobody that you know, this is like a gold rush. Nobody wants to be left out. What a great day because we're looking at a point right now. Katie McCone, where the outliers in the Middle East will be not not those few nations who acknowledge Israel and have diplomatic relations. The outliers will See those stubborn, bigoted anti Semitic nations that refused to acknowledge Israel. That's I mean beyond the game changer. This is this is so historic. It's really again. It's hard to underestimate how extraordinary this is, and it's hard to even force the home Anyways, this is going to improve everybody's security, peace, prosperity. Throughout the region, and it puts the United States in a great position. We broke the deal joyful, absolutely joyful. Katie make fun. Always going to talk with you. Thanks for joining us today. Thanks, Larry. Again. Her book is Author Revolution. Trump Washington And we, the people Former Trump Deputy National Security Visor Katie MacFarland. Big Big Day.

Clara was interviewed on Bloomberg radio and television Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Solomon finally gave the go ahead for the initial public offering of Aramco he's showing he thinks there is enough support from local investors for what's likely to be a record share sale Bloomberg has learned the crown prince made the decision at a meeting he chaired yesterday and an official announcement is likely as soon as tomorrow global news twenty four hours a day on air and it took took on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries I'm Susanna Palmer this is Bloomberg this is Bloomberg businessweek I am chasing Kelly Carol Mathur welcome to the weekend edition of Bloomberg businessweek over the next couple of hours we're gonna you news of the week inside for the magazine and more and she said this is a very special issue it's the new economy issue and it's really looking at the drivers and the disruptors of the global economy is so it really just sets you into all of the trends and storage you need to know about it's a primer for a big event coming up later on this month if the second annual new economy form it's going to be held in Beijing a gathering of world leaders of business leaders really in the business of problem solving so we have all of that to cover this week also we have a couple of stories we've got to point out including one on Christine Lagarde she takes the reins this week at the European central bank will hear what that means for the central bank she is going to be a different type of head she brings different skills to that job exit druggy entered looking card it couldn't have two different people cast in this role in a lot of ways eager to see what you make this journey that address right very good point first up though we speak with the editor of the special issue Christina Lindblad she oversaw all of it really stitch together what's happening in this new economy and how she put it all together I think about this this issue all year long it's it's good and great repository of stories that we might not be able to do that the rest of the year because we have sex you know certain sections and they don't and some of these issues don't fit very well within those sections and speaking of repositories plastics we're not talking about credit cards or talk about actual plastic being used to pay for things wait what the plastic bank is a a project that started with this entrepreneur in Vancouver and the first one opened in Haiti and we visited one in Bali in Indonesia that opened recently and basically the idea is to make plastic worth something and spend give people an incentive to not throw it out so basically we talked to people there who you know supplement their income by collecting plastic and we deeming it the plastic bank the plastic bank had IBM built in the sort of like he wallet after that like people can use to track their income and their savings they can also use those those credits that they have and we deem them at certain stores so for example somebody can earn like seven dollars a month that does not seem to sound like a lot in the United States but in Indonesia is a country where GDP per capita is only three thousand something dollars a year how is it fascinates just kind of it sounds like such a simple solution to what's kind of a big problem giving people kind of financial identity as well as solving a pollution problem that's right because I mean the idea is also that they're almost like these these countries have a huge number of unbanked people and so this is basically training people the idea of suck water savings you know like this we could talk to one guy who say I used to go out and spend all the money like I got because he used to go to a recycling center and we deem that plastic and just get paid you know right there but now he's sort of has an incentive to save it up another big story that is in the magazine and looking at it from a global perspective is immigration and what I love about this story has been such a push back against immigration by so many different countries around the world and yet countries need it because they need workers well this is a project that I desperately wanted to do and this is an example of something that would have been sort of where to wear dresses yeah but I I thought we have one of the sections of the issues governance and I thought what is something that that means really good policy and it's sort of this movement of people which is become such a hot political issue but it really is it's it's imperative for certain economies to keep you know to keep immigration alive as a as a you know it is a necessity right so it's like how do you make it work for you so we looked at three different examples and I think Canada is one of the most interesting because it has this system that takes an economic migrants so not political asylum seekers or anything else but so if you're applying as an economic migrant Canada you're going to get scored on several criteria which one is your skills your education your past work perfect I'm not before as I'm sorry your your like your resume what kind of jobs you've had language so the national languages of Canada French and English and not score is going to determine basically whether you'll being you're going to be offered permanent residents and other any other countries are looking at this program right yes so New Zealand and Australia already adopted their programs are modeled on on Canada and the U. S. there's two legislator to Republican legislators who have proposed as part of a a big reform and immigration and what's cool about that story and people should definitely check it out is you said to give it some sweet but then you have some personal examples as well let's talk about climate because we talk about it here a lot right Bloomberg there's a whole effort in the newsroom you look at it through one river tell us about right so we went to a river that runs through several countries in southern Africa we chose southern Africa because it's one of the most vulnerable places acts in terms of basically people and governments do not have the money to spend and medication so we looked at in this river the Zambezi which starts in Zambia and lines all the way down to Mozambique the the interesting thing is in the north the problem has been drought and in the south there being two floods and cyclones so it's basically the story of wacky weather and how it plays out for these communities along the river these are important issues in these are global issues and you guys talk like so well in the magazine Christina thank you so much our economics editor a Christina Lindblad overseeing the economic Emily this issue and it's Christina Lindblad you know she's a frequent guest on ours frequent collaborator in many ways and this was a tough assignment I think because how do you really get your arms around this new economy right and you just get to that so many of the important issues that we face in the global economy in twenty twenty love checking your listing to Bloomberg businessweek coming up we speak with the man in charge of putting the the foreign it is with.
